Finally the veil has been lifted. Pictured to the left is the cover art for DIMMU BORGIR's forthcoming black metal opus, In Sorte Diaboli, due out on April 27th (mainland Europe), April 24th (North America) and April 30th (UK) via Nuclear Blast Records.
As previously reported, the artwork compliments the medieval period the conceptual story is based upon and is influenced by a painting from the middle ages. The booklet will include 32 pages graphically detailing the tale of a Priest who "discovers that he has nothing to do with Christianity."
In Sorte Diaboli will feature the following tracks: 'The Serpentine Offering', 'The Chosen Legacy', 'The Conspiracy Unfolds', 'The Sacrilegious Scorn', The Fallen Arises', 'The Sinister Awakening', 'The Fundamental Alienation', 'The Invaluable Darkness', 'The Foreshadowing Furnace'.
Patric Ullaeus and his Revolver Film Company produced the video for 'The Serpentine Offering'. Nuclear Blast says that it's their "biggest" video production project ever and BW&BK confirms that the video is epic in size and scope!
